Janice, Stan, Jody and family, I am so sorry to hear of Rick's passing. Memories of our families growing up together remain precious and remembering Rick's dry sense of humor still makes my smile.

So very sorry to hear about Rick. Rick and I go "way back" during our days at Kraft together and before. I remember when the 1978 blizzard hit KV, he drove me home in the heavy snow in his "truck". Lots of people were already at my house when we plowed up the driveway so he stayed and partied with us for a few hours (I don't remember...but it could have been for a few days) if you know what I mean. He was one of my favorite people always. Rest in Peace, my good friend.
